Status of Chinese Adoption in Holland

"Adoption becoming more difficult"
AMSTERDAM – Prospective parents who would like to adopt a healthy young child have to wait eight to ten years currently. Waiting times have never been this long, Trouw reported on Wednesday...

Developments in China have contributed to the long waiting times. More children worldwide are adopted from China than from any other single country.

China signed The Hague Adoption Treaty at the beginning of this year, in which it pledges to first look for adoptive parents within its borders before sending children abroad. Far fewer children are being brought to the Netherlands from China as a result, Trouw reports.
